Bálferð Baldrs Lyrics

3. Bálferð Baldrs (6:05)
(Instrumental)
Original:

En Ædirnir tókulu lík Baldrs ok Flutti til sæver. Hringhorni hét skip Baldrs. Hann var allra skipa mestr. Hann vildu goðin fram setja ok gera þár á bálfgr Baldrs. En skipit gekk hvergi fram. Þá var sent í Jgtunheima eptir gýgi þeiri er Hyrrokkin hét. En er hon kom ok reið vargi ok hafði hoggorm at taumu þá hljóp hon af hestinum, en Óðinn kallaði til berserki fjóra at gæta hestsins, ok fengu þeir eigi hadit nema þeir feldi hann. Þá gekk Hyrrokkin á framstafn nokkvans ok hratt fram í fyrsta viðbbragði svá at eldr hraut ór hlunnunum ok lond oll skulfu. Þá varð Þórr reiðr ok greip hammarin ok myndi þá brjóta hofuð hennar áðr en goðin oll báðu henni friðar. Þá var borit út á skipit lík Baldrs, ok er þat sá kona hans Nanna Nespsdóttir þá sprakk hon af harmi ok dó. Var hon borin á bálit ok slegit í eldi. Þá stóð Þórr at ok vígði bálit með Mjolni. En fyrir fótum hans rann dvergr nokkur. Sá er Litr nefndr. En Þórr spyrndi fæti sinum á hann ok hratt honum í eldinn ok brann hann.


Translation:

So the Aesir took Baldr body and carried it to the sea. Hringorni was the name of Baldr's ship. It was the biggest of all ships. The Aesir planned to set it out to sea with Baldr aboard for this final journey. But the ship refused to move. So they went to giantland to seek the princess Hyrrokin. When she arrived, riding a wolf and using Vipers as reins she dismounted the steed and Odin summoned four berserks to look after the steed but they were unable to hold without knocking it down. Then Hyrrokin went to the prow of the boat and pushed it out with the first touch so that flames flew from the rollers and all the lands quaked. Then Thor got angry and grasped his hammer and was about to her head until the gods begged for her grace. Then Baldr's body was carried out onto the ship, when his wife Nanna, Nep's daughter saw this she collapsed with grief and died. She was then carried onto the pyre and it was then set alight. Thor then consecrated the pyre with Miollnir, but a certain dwarf named Lit ran in front of his feet. Thor kicked at him with his foot, thrust him into the fire and he was burned.
